#2103540 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by Kira on 22 January 2011 - 06:10 PM

Okay, so he told the Islanders to take a hike...and now what happens is up in the air again.

This is the biggest soap opera since the Manny/Cujo/Hasek debacle.

The waiting game sucks, let's play Hungry Hungry Hippos.

Sounds good, but isn't it kinda hard to play that with hockey gloves on?

Dear God, I have missed Pasha so damned much. And you can tell it's not the same without him out there. It'll be so good to see him back!

#2101805 Which NHL player have you met

Posted by Kira on 21 January 2011 - 11:59 AM

I have a couple of stories to share with you.

I have a very dear friend named Julie, who, unfortunately, is confined to a wheelchair. She had a wonderful picture of her with Jiri Fischer that she had always wanted him to sign, but could never get done. A couple years ago at camp, one of the volunteers asked if she had the picture with her. He took it to Jiri, and he signed it for her, along with the words, "Sometimes, life is better than we think it is. " When he brought the picture back to her, she and I both were in tears. It was such a sweet and wonderful thing.

A couple years before that, she was close to getting Scotty Bowman to stop and talk to her, but he got mobbed by people. He looked at her and said, "Maybe tomorrow I'll come out." She said it was okay, and didn't think about it. A few minutes later, someone tapped her on the shoulder and said, "He wants to see you."

"He who?"

"Mr. Bowman." He had gone over to where Julie and her husband had parked their jeep and was waiting for her. They sat and talked, just the two of them, for about 15 minutes. She said it was the thrill of a lifetime. I guess good things do come to those who wait.

#2094549 Is the Western Conference better?

Posted by Kira on 09 January 2011 - 11:31 AM

I think the West is tougher. If you look at the standings in the East, teams that would make the playoffs there wouldn't even stand a chance in the West. I think we have it tougher because of the travel as well. It does play havoc on the body, there's no mistake about it. Eastern Conference teams when they play each other, it's mostly a hop, skip and jump to wherever the game is, but out in the West, it isn't that easy.

I'd be willing to bet that if we were in the East (oh please make it so), we'd be a very dominant team...more than we already are.

#2092334 Crosby Out with Mild Concussion

Hit his head too hard on the headboard while Bettman was coming from behind

Sad way to get injured

Ouch! But perfect answer.

By the way, if he's looking for sympathy, I have a dictionary within arm's reach.

I've heard people say that Crosby didn't seem all there when commenting after the game.

Like that's anything uncommon?

Oh dear God, I'll be laughing like hell if that's the case. :rotflmao:

Maybe even Mother Nature has had enough of having Crosby/Ovechkin shoved down her throat and is on our side.

LET IT POUR!!!!!!!!!!!

They're talking about rain and 40 degrees around here New Year's Day. I hate to be mean, but I'd laugh my ass off if it poured rain in Pittsburgh that day. It would be poetic justice.

#2077229 Datsyuk, Crosby. On a level of their own.

Posted by Kira on 13 December 2010 - 06:41 PM

There is a huge difference between Pasha and that other little douchebag. You'll not see Pasha being a media hog, and he puts team first. During the interview after the game the other night, he said, "We won the game, that's more important." You sure as hell won't hear that other media hog say something like that. While every sports writer in humanity is kissing up to Crosby's little ass, Pasha goes out and quietly does his job, night after night. And we who really know the way it is appreciate him for it.

#2074847 Datsyuk in the Hart conversation

Posted by Kira on 09 December 2010 - 02:24 PM

As much as I love Pasha, and God knows I do, he doesn't stand a snowball's chance of winning the Hart. Why? That douchebag in Pittsburgh who has everyone and his brother kissing his ass and treating him like he's the second coming. The fact that he isn't means nothing.

I'm more than sure that Pasha will take home another Selke trophy, which I'm sure won't break his heart (nor mine), but the chances of him walking off with the Hart are about as good as mine for being 5'7", blonde, gorgeous and loved. Not likely.

#2067862 Ooops... Corey Perry

Posted by Kira on 24 November 2010 - 02:05 PM

That goal even made Keith Olbermann's "Oddball" last night. This has been a humiliating season in some ways for him. First he loses a fight to Pasha, who is not the most prolific fighter in the League (far from it), and then he scores in his own net. Too funny.

#2062000 Welcome to Detroit

I would rather walk in downtown Detroit than in downtown Washington D.C. Or New York. I feel a lot safer here than I do there.

Your body is sending you a message loud and clear - give it up and go home.

#2061356 Welcome to Detroit

Posted by Kira on 11 November 2010 - 01:06 PM

I've never had a problem down there. I just mind my own business and everything is cool. So what's the big deal?

If you're looking for sympathy, the dictionary is your friend.
